Calc 2.02f (downloaded from Dave Gillespie's site, which is the first
Google hit for "Emacs calculator"; trying to find it from www.gnu.org
was difficult) doesn't build properly under Emacs 21.2.1.  The
makefile copies calc-maint.el to calc-maint.elc for some reason, then
tries to run it, and Emacs complains that calc-maint.elc wasn't
compiled with Emacs.  Manually compiling calc-maint.el with M-x
byte-compile-file lets the rest of the build process finish.  But
running calc then just complaing "[bad format]" whenever you press a
numeric key like "3".

I seem to remember hitting this problem before and getting a simple
fix from someone on this list, but I've forgotten/lost the specifics.

I'd really like to urge that the calc package be included with and
preconfigured into future versions of emacs, to solve this problem
once and for all.  It's an 800k tgz file, but that's not as big a deal
now as it used to be.
